Want college credit while getting a paycheck? Co-op students earn college credit, work experience, and wages all at the same time. Working under the supervision of college faculty and employers, eligible students earn college credit while working at jobs that are related to their college majors and career goals. To see if you qualify, a Co-op Registration Form and an official job description will need to be submitted to the Career Services office.

Eligibility

Students must meet the following criteria to be eligible to participate in the cooperative education program.

  • The student’s job description must relate to the major they are pursuing.

  • Students must have completed a minimum of twelve credit hours at West Virginia University at Parkersburg.
  • Students must have at least a 2.0 cumulative grade-point average.
